As previously revealed NFL has crossed every existent line, with their disrespectful behavior and have shamed our country beyond imaginable. And now not only that but they’ve created their own “space” that they wanna share with the people and supposedly hear their opinion and of course, let’s not forget what the real purpose here is, to get people’s attention and cause general chaos.
Mike Pence made it clear to everybody that he is not going to tolerate arrogant and anti-American behavior anymore. He walked out of game, he showed his revolt, but it didn’t change much. NFLPA released their own response.
This was NFLPA statement on player’s constitutional rights :
NFL players are union members and part of the labor movement that has woven the fabric of America for generations. Our men and their families are also conscientious Americans who continue to be forces for good through our communities and some have decided to use their platform to peacefully raise awareness to issues that deserve attention.
It is a source of enormous pride that some of the best conversations about these issues have taken place in our locker rooms in a respectful, civil and thoughtful way that should serve as a model for how all of us can communicate with each other.
We should not stifle these discussions and cannot allow our rights to become subservient to the very opinions our Constitution protects. That is what makes us the land of the free and home of the brave.
